To Doctor Who fans, it is the name of the cybernetic parrot perched atop the shoulder of Bruce Purchase’s Captain in the story The Pirate Planet. To fans of the work of one Douglas…

More Steel than David McCallum

More nerve than VX gas. More hate than the Middle East. More comebacks than Tom Jones. Now with added airpower. They make Cybermen look like the Bee Gees.
